Here are some of the new thoughts and resources:
-What was astonishing to him was how people seemed to run out of their own being, run out of whatever the stuff was that made them who they were, and drained of themselves and turned into sort of people they would have once felt sorry for.
-Conscious choice vs Convenient outcome
-When Idea becomes you. That’s the thing.
-Visual experiences that shape you who you are! (From The Fountain!)
-Philosophy is the thing which we live by and it therefore exercises a powerful effect on human psychology.
– Things in their actual existence, have nothing to do with the names we give them.
-If I’m in here just because I could get in.. Do I need to be ‘that’ for the rest of my life? Shouldn’t I question what exactly I ‘want’ to be?… It all boils down to what makes you happy. And then, when you start doing what you love, either things will follow or it won’t matter, man.
-All these things, things, things… In their actual existence, have nothing to do with the names we assign to them. And when we begin to face these things in their bare existence, we find that they’re simply there. None of these things have the slightest reason to be there. And It’s absurd.. the essence of my being, which I’ve been hoping to discover, is noting but a construct, constructed ‘for’ myself. I’m condemned to be free. I’m free, free in every way, free to behave like a fool, tool, free to accept, free to refuse, free to marry, free to endure or give up the game.
-The moment you don’t let yourself caught into fear of uncertainty, impossibility or inevitability, you can begin to enjoy the imaginative potential constructed in the process.. As something like a story where you are being acted out through your imagination.
-O how one wishes sometimes to escape from the meaningless dullness of human eloquence, from all those sublime phrases, to take refuge in nature, apparently so inarticulate, or in the wordlessness of true music, or of a human understanding rendered speechless by emotions.
-Sartre: Cafe Philosopher; Revisiting, reinteroreting and reworking these into a bold integration.
-A philosopher who makes subjectivity, the concrete human existence, central to his viewpoint is bound to become a literary artist so as to convey the human condition in its full concrete reality.
-Antonio Roquentin; Ka; When you’ve begun to experience a novel in its fullnes, the character becomes so real that it jumps out and becomes a real living being.
-The Struggle to give words to these flashes
– I’m very much aware that the mind is slipping away from its normal states, aware that my world is beginning to take over new strange appearances. And Yet I’m sufficiently in touch with reality to want to observe my own mental states, to keep a day to day account of the changes in my perceptions, connections and thoughts. Change has come over me. The whole point of going through all of this is to determine it.
-Connected political tradition.
-Find time for people you admire; Translate your thoughts properly; Basic belief in goodness of people; Nurturing a personal equations in relationship.
– कुछ तथ्यों, मान्यताओं को वैचारिक सत्य मानकर अगर उन्ही में स्थिर हो जायें, तो विचारों में गतिशीलता ही नहीं रही। हमारे जो केंद्रीय विचार हैं, उनमे एक स्थिरता एवं गतिशीलता का समुचित रूप में रहना नितांत आवश्यक है। और बिना संशय का उदय हुए विचारों में गतिशीलता नहीं आ सकती।
